Dear Ken,

Thanks for sharing this interview with us. I vividly remember that in 1979, during the Tampa meeting of the ASZ, Kristian warned me not to ask Meredith Jones about "his" tube worms. Of course that was sufficient justification to do exactly that when annex paying a too short visit to the USNM, and was rewarded with a one hour private lecture by Meredith. Never realised at that time how privileged I was. 

Shortly after the discovery of the Galapagos Rift community had been made public, I used the existence of such communities in my biogeography classes as examples of alternative "islands". Wonder if MacArthur & Wilson's theory ever was tested on hydrothermal vent communities.

There is a nice piece on the USA National Public Radio on the discovery of the rifts in the Galapagos.

Most of you know the story -- but Kristian get some nice airtime as the Curator of Worms!
